Brentwood Secondary College is a vibrant learning community where all students are supported and encouraged to achieve success and to pursue excellence. A learning community is a place where everyone is learning, both independently and together, and where everyone is continually striving to improve. Students are supported in their intellectual, emotional, social and physical development by a highly professional group of staff. The belief that happy, healthy, resilient students learn best and are therefore able to achieve their best is a guiding philosophy.
A Brentwood education will provide every student with the opportunity to develop their talents, to nurture a passion and to grow in confidence about their future. The values that underpin a Brentwood education reflect the concept of a genuine learning community. They include Values for Learning (creativity, curiosity, discipline, reflection and resilience) and Values for Community (compassion, empathy, integrity, respect and responsibility).
